I have for a very long time, since Kamala dropping out early

Thought that she was going to be VP pick. It was guaranteed.

I am still very strongly leaning to her being the pick.

The only other person who may bump her is Whitmer.

I think she has a shot. I have a small doubt about Harris, but still believe it will be her.

3. Her dropping out was very sudden and unexpected, from what I recall. Amy stayed in

And her numbers were worse.

5. I've been thinking same thing for a few days,

her dropping out so early and suddenly might be because he offered her either VP or a very high-level position. I rreeeaaaaaally want to see her as AG, kicking some serious ass!

7. If she waited any longer her name would have been n the California ballot

Amy had already caught her in Iowa and New Hampshire. Her campaign was in turmoil. She dropped out to preserve her reputation. Certainly not because of any deal. Who would she have made the deal with at that time, Bloomberg?

8. Exactly, Harris dropped out to preserve her reputation

Let's not play revisionist history around here. Harris was tanking. These were her 6 most recent favorable/unfavorable percentages prior to dropping out of the race on December 3:

35/47
37/47
37/48
38/47
36/48
31/43

All underwater by at least 9 points. None of those are Rasmussen polls. Five are Economist/YouGov and one is from Harvard-Harris.

Now the approval has worked its way back up closer to break even at 39/43

9. The whole 'stop Kamala movement' is just weird combo

of sexism and racism - fear of an ambitious WoC.

There's palpable desperation on the part of some, on both the right and left, to make sure 'we stop Kamala ' lol.

I will say this, if some middle-America white woman is selected instead - there will be blowback amongst PoC especially WoC - who have long expected the VP choice would be a WoC.
